Obama thanks Michelle for her grace and grit in final speech

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Chicago: An emotional President Barack Obama today used his farewell speech to the nation to thank his wife Michelle for sacrificing her personal life for his political dreams, calling her his "best friend" and a "role model" for the new generation.

"Michelle – for the past twenty-five years, you've been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend," Obama said in front of thousands of his supporters with the First Lady sitting in the front row along with her youngest daughter Malia and her mother in their hometown. The 52-year-old First Lady received standing ovation as Obama thanked her.

"You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humour. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody," Obama said while pausing to wipe his eyes with a tissue and regain composure.

"And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You've made the country proud," said the 55-year-old outgoing US President about his life partner for 25 years.

He also thanked his daughters Sasha and Malia.
